Nas Announces 'Illmatic' 20th Anniversary Tour Dates And Doc Screenings
If you didn't already know, Nas' seismic entry into the rap game AKA Illmatic turned a whopping 20 this year. 2014 has already been a trophy room year for the Queens bomber, rocking the Lincoln Center with full orchestral ensemble in tow and debuting his documentary Time IsIllmatic at Tribeca this past spring, but it ain't over yet. It appears Mr. Jones will be embarking on a month long tour in October, where you can catch a screening of his triumphant Illmatic backstory, followed by a performance from the man himself, who will be running through his classic LP from cover to cover.
Still no word on whether he'll be joined by the aforementioned ensemble, but when we're talking Nasir, it appears anything could happen. Peep the tour dates below and join Nas in a victory lap for Illmatic by copping a ticket to a show near you.
